CHAPTER II: DEPARTMENT OF STATE POLICE
PART 1298 IMAGING PRODUCTS
SECTION 1298.30 REQUEST PROCEDURES


 

Section 1298.30  Request Procedures

 

a)         A requester shall complete an Imaging Request Form for each imaging product request.

 

b)         Each request shall include the appropriate fee established in Section 1298.40, for the particular image product requested.  The payment of fees, established in Section 1298.40, shall be made by certified check, money order or personal check made payable to the State Police Services Fund; cash will not be accepted.

 

c)         The Department shall not process the request until receipt of a correctly completed Imaging Request Form and the appropriate fees.

 

d)         Each request will be valid for 30 calendar days from the date the request form was sent to the requester.  Once this period has expired, the request shall be null and void, and a new request form must be submitted.

 

e)         All imaging products, excluding digital or non-digital photographic images, shall be provided in a printed or digital format.

 

f)         Those requested images provided without a subpoena shall have all graphic images redacted.

 

g)         All photographic images, whether digital or non-digital, shall be provided in the form of a 4 x 6 inch photograph.  Each still image request shall also include a CD-ROM or DVD containing copies of the printed digital images.

 

h)         Each request for photographic images will include all images, whether digital or non-digital, contained within the related case file; therefore, the costs associated with each request shall be dependent upon the total number of images contained within the case file or remaining images after redacting has been completed.

 

i)          All requested imaging products shall be sent by U.S. Mail to the requester unless other arrangements are made and paid for by the requester.

 

j)          The requester shall not reproduce, license, sell, or further distribute imaging products obtained without the written consent of the Department.

 

k)         The processing of requests shall be delayed or suspended when Department imaging resources are needed for law enforcement purposes.

 

l)          In the event release of an image would constitute an unwarranted invasion of the personal privacy due to the manner in which an individual is portrayed in the image, the image will not be released except as required by law or with the notarized permission of the individual or the individual's representative.
